Krishna is a cow-rearer, Gopal, and is dear to Gokul and the milkwomen there. He is also dear to milkmen and small calves. I sing glories of His lotus-feet which is continuously reverred and is rare for demi-Gods and sages alike.||1||
His body is like a blue cloud and defeats the many-fold beauty of Kamdev, the Cupid, and He entices the world. His clothes are made of silk having the color of pollen-grains of lotus, yellow, He is young, He is the abode of all the qualities, and He is the abode of mercy.||2||
He has a peacock's feather on the forehead, wears ear-ornaments, and has a red-lotus like eyes. He has a garland of gunja (a flower), His organs are vivid and colorful, and [despite this colorful enticement] He is the absolver of the universe.||3||
His hairs are curly, He has a beautiful tilak, and His face is like a glowing moon during dark nights. O Tulsidas! He, Who roams in the gardens of Vrindavan¹, is the only absolver of my [our] fears.||4||
¹ The childhood of Krishna was spent in Vrindavan.
